The Alabama Crimson Tide are working hard on the recruiting trail. They scored another 2018 commit on Saturday, landing cornerback Josh Jobe out of Cheshire, Connecticut. Jobe, originally a Miami Hurricanes commit, announced he was flipping from The U to ‘Bama on his Twitter account and will sign at the beginning of the new Early Signing Period on December 20.
I want to thank all coaches from the University of Miami but at this time I have to do what is best for me, my future and my family. I will be signing with the University of Alabama on December 20th. #Rolltide pic.twitter.com/bjzoVk94UM— JJ (@JoshuaMJobe) December 16, 2017
Jobe is listed at 6-foot-1 ,180 lbs., he’s a pretty tall-ish cornerback, relatively. It’s no surprise that he ranks as one of the best at his position, listed 13th among all CBs in 2018. There’s no one better in the state of Connecticut than Mr. Jobe, who is 95th in the nation and a four-star recruit. You’ll be able to see him play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
247Sports’ standalone rankings view him even more highly. He ranks 47th in their rankings and seventh among all corners.
He had originally committed to the ‘Canes all the way back on June 14, 2015 when he was a rising sophomore. Evidently though, Jobe has decided that Tuscaloosa is the place for him and not Coral Gables. He had received offers from the Oregon Ducks, Michigan Wolverines, Florida Gators, Georgia Bulldogs and Auburn Tigers, among others.
Alabama’s class is now up to 8th in the 247Sports 2018 recruiting rankings. They have 15 players total, 11 of them being four-stars and four being three-stars.
